Five inspiring women over 50

We’re lucky enough to live in an age of some seriously inspirational older women, who have done much to prove that reaching 50 doesn’t mean an end to glamour, success and sophistication.

Recent research has shown that only a third of women aged 50-74 consider their age when shopping for clothes – a figure that stacks up when we consider the number of glamorous older women who have been given prominent modelling contracts for major high street retailers in recent years. This surge in 50+ role models means that older women are now investing in trendier pieces, and steering clear of the dowdy clothes that were previously the staple of the mature women.

Here are some of the women we have to thank for blazing a trail for 50+ style and glamour:

Jerry Hall

The former Mrs Jagger still looks amazing, and proves that glamour is often as simple as a slick of red lipstick. Her style is simple and chic, and includes black suits and tailored jackets.

She nails red carpet glamour by refusing to shy away from showing off her assets, without being inappropriate. She looks great in evening maxi dresses with classic accessories.

Anna Wintour

The editor of US Vogue, Anna Wintour always looks stylish and perfectly turned out. She favours tailored clothes with sharp lines, like pencil skirts, but is also known for her huge fur coats, shades and trademark blunt bob. She is living proof that style, glamour and success are more potent than ever after 50.

Kim Cattrall

In her role in Sex and the City, Kim was always the sexy one – and she’s just as glamorous in real life. She pulls off the sexy look brilliantly, with low plunging necklines and fitted dresses.

Diane Keaton

Diane is known for her stylish and effortlessly cool take on menswear, and she still looks as fabulous as ever. She wears hats and masculine tailoring, pulling it all together with a great pair of heels.

With her M&S campaigns, Twiggy has bounced back into the spotlight as a stylish 50+ lady. She’s been credited with helping older women feel that they can still wear fashionable clothes, and look fantastic in the process.

How to look fashionable with affordable price?

Being fashionable!!! Is what all try every morning, right? Even I do. But the problem is pocket money. Which may be the same as last year and no increment, but the attires you need to pick up to keep trendy are becoming expensive every day, more than that often trends are changing. So how do we afford it?

Well let me tell you something interesting, I have sailed the same boat for some time now.
Finally today I have made fashion affordable for myself.

1. Accessories are the best way out. It gives you class when worn properly. Put on a plain tee with Denim or a skirt, high heels, a scarf around your neck, with studs. Just take care of the colors blended together. Prefer printed or contrast stoles over plain attire.

2. Tap a long chain on a plain tee and Denim combo, with a thin belt on the waist, if you have wear boots or flats will do well.


3. For a club visit, wear a plain attire may be a dress or trousers and add baling to it with earrings and may be a clutch bags and heels.

It is not always needed to buy expensive dresses. But when you have budget constraints I will suggest to pick and choose more of accessories as you can mix match and have a new look every day .Then pick up basic like solid color dresses, plain tee, dark color denims etc.

The other way to look elegant and trendy is to go for more of bright color attires, (it can be basic stuff) but the colors have a class of their own, they stand out.

Fashion talk – Is this a trend?

Tucking in shirts only in the front be a trend?

I don’t think that this is a trend; it’s just something you do when you consider the shirt is better tucked in or just left out. It’s nice when it seems effortless, but when you go through town and see everyone is doing this same thing…

You can find this type of style among the teens and even for few, this might be a habit. Any way it not so vulgar and any one can try this (both male and female).
